Roma past and present through forum theater
Totalitarianism emerged in Europe by World War II as a popular type of governance seeking to promote state power and reduce the power of civilians. Totalitarian governments establish rigid rules and regulations for citizens, controlled all aspects of daily life by making education, banking and other key services fall under the control of the government.Roma were seen by the Nazis as being inferior, they were not as good a human being as the superior race.
Discrimination against the Roma, marginalization and ostracism are still prevalent in today’s Europe.
The methods of this seminar will be forum theatre and non formal education. Forum and street theatre is often used by socially excluded and disempowered groups as interactive form of theatre that encourages audience interaction and explores different options for dealing with a problem or issue. Through theatre we will give chance to youngsters to raise their own awareness about the Holocaust, elements of discrimination, denial of civic rights in the past and today towards the Roma.
The methodology is based on NFE methods: using manuals such as: Right to Remember, T-Kit-Social Inclusion, Compass etc. groups work, brainstorming, wall writing, association game, discussion, debate, simulation, audiovisual techniques
